Spring 1992 

CHANCELLOR'S COLUMN - Impressions of Cuba 

Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen 

The door to Cuba was opened briefly 
late in February, allowing a small 
delegation from UW-Stout to explore 
educational opportunities there. It was a 
memorable experience. The seven-day 
visit was long enough to gain some strong 
impressions about Cuba, but too short to 
draw any firm conclusions. 

At the invitation of INTUR, an agency 
formed by the Cuban government to 
develop tourism, I joined two of our staff 
members, Esther Fahm, dean of the 
School of Home Economics, and Jafar 
Jafari, associate professor of hospitality 
and tourism, for a visit which began with 
our late night arrival in Havana 
February 24. 

Havana is a large city, nearly two 
million people reside there, yet I was 
struck by the almost total darkness that 
greeted our flight. Streets were nearlyvoid 
of traffic and while the main streets had 
street lights, the side streets were 

normally totally dark. It was very easy 
to imagine what cities must have been 
like in the nineteenth century before 
the development of modern, efficient 
street lighting. 

When I had the opportunity to tour 
Havana during the daylight hours, I was 
struck by its deterioration. Everything 
seems in need of repair; buildings, roads, 
communication systems, water systems, 
everything. It is a gray, somber city and 
somehow the word melancholy captures 
how I felt as we visited this Cuban capital. 
Because there is little electrical power, 
the buildings are dimly lit and everything 
inside seemed to reflect the exterior. 
Roofs leaked, ceiling tiles were stained, 
plumbing was usually in ill repair and at 
times running water was a prize 

In contrast, I gained a very positive 
impression of the people. We met 
primarily with university faculty and 
officials and governmental professionals. 
I was struck by their optimism, their 
curiosity about the United States, their 
pride in the revolution and what it 
accomplished in the area of health care 
and education. Health care is generally 
good and free to all Cubans. Their 
elementary and secondary education is 
mandatory, and it is generally accepted 
that nearly all Cubans are literate. 

I came away with the impression,.too, 
that these people realize that without 
normal relations with our country, Cuba 
cannot truly prosper. 

After five days in Havana, we drove 
90 miles east to Veradero, a coastal city 
that is experiencing rapid tourism growth. 
Although we drove at night, there were 

hundreds of bicyclists and pedestrians 
going in either direction along the sides 
of the highway. 

With the tap on needed Soviet oil 
closed, transportation is almost at a 
standstill. Oil supplies, when available, 
go to industry and agriculture. If you 
need to go from one town to the next, you 
have no alternative but to join the army 
of bicyclists and pedestrians. Public 
transportation is scarce. 

Importation of American automobiles 
ceased in 1959. Later model autos are 
generally the Russian Ladas. With no 
inventory of parts available, autos are 
literally wired together to keep them 
running. Our group concluded that if you 
need a 1959 Chevrolet, Cuba is the place 
to find one. 

Along a 12-mile stretch of coast from 
Veradero, with some of the world's most 
beautiful beaches, there are 7,000 hotel 
rooms . Plans call for adding 23,000 more 
in this decade. Cuba now attracts 
approximately 300,000 tourists annually, 
the same number the country ailracted 
before Castro look control. Cuba would 
like to host 2 million tourists a year. The 
government is counting on dollars 
from tourism to pave the road to 
economic recovery. 

With one of the largest education 
programs in hospitality and tourism, it's 
apparent that UW-Stout has much to 
offer Cuba's emerging industry. 

But there are numerous constraints 
governing the development of any 
relationship. Our government has 
sanctions in place that preclude any 
arrangement at this time. Before our 
group left for Cuba, the State Department 


Therese Willkomm, Ankeny, Iowa, 
received the Outstanding Alumni award 
during winter commencement exercises 
December 14. 

Willkomm has been program director 
of farm family rehabilitation 
management for the Easter Seal Society 
of Iowa Inc., in Des Moines, since 1986. 
Her responsibilities include providing 
rehabilitation services to farm families 
affected by physical disabilities and 
providing agricultural worksite 
modification consultation. 

Prior to joining the Easter Seal 
Society, Willkomm held positions 
with Purdue University, West Lafayette, 
IN; Management Consulting and 
Rehabilitation Services Inc., Ankeny, LA; 
Mankato State University, Mankato,MN; 
Drake University, Des Moines, LA; and 
the program for Independent Living 
on campus. 

Willkomm received a bachelor's 
degree in vocational rehabilitation from 
Stout in 1982, and st master of science 
degree in vocational rehabilitation from 
Drake University, Des Moines, in 
1984. She has been published 

(left to right) Louis and Joanne Willkomm joined Chancellor Charles W. 
Sorensen to honor their daughter, Therese Willkomm '82 as the Outstanding 
Alumni Award recipient 

extensively, and has presented on rural 
rehabilitation technology and rural 
service delivery issues innumerous states 
and foreign countries. 

Willkomm was president and founder 
of the Iowa Rehabilitation Technology 
Alliance in 1988; founder of the Dunn 

County Citizen Advocacy Program for 
Developmental Disabilities in 1980; 
recipient of the CORA Award for Women 
in Communications in 1990; and Young 
Woman of the Year in 1984. She has also 
received several research grants. 

made it clear that we could do nothing 
that might aid the Cuban economy, even 
forbidding us to provide information that 
might be helpful. 

University of Havana officials that 
met with us eagerly sought to establish 
faculty and student exchange programs 
or short courses in tourism training. 
Although they need expertise in tourism, 
there isn't a single educational area that 
they are not interested in. 

Cuba has been out of the mainstream 
for more than 30 years. The country 
offers proof that isolationism can be 
stifling. While other countries search for 
new identities, Cuba appears to be on the 
brink of change of some kind as well. 

I expect that in this decade we will 
see the United States and Cuba formally 
recognize one another, establish trade 
relationships, and normalize relations. 
This is logical and realistic, but 
expect very little until after the 
November elections. 

UW-Stout has a long standing 
commitment to international education. 
In this instance, we are one of only several 
universities in the country to have 
explored programs with Cuba. From my 
perspective, this kind of global 
networking helps UW-Stout keep pace 
with change. and helps UW-Stout 
grow educationally.

by the Stout Foundation on behalf of 
current needs of the university. 

Current UW-Stout students staffed the 
phones and enjoyed visiting with parents, 
reminding them about Family Weekend 
and explaining the Annual Fund. "It was 
great. The parents here are very friendly. 

My best experience was when I got my 
first $100 pledge," said Andrea 
Hougaard. "It felt good to know that 
people can afford to give and don't 
hesitate to help out." 

"The phonathon was a new experience 
for me, and I enjoyed the variety of 
students that I worked with. My best 
experience was reaching an alum who 
was also a parent. He had a lot of 
interesting things to say, and we both

Fourth Annual f? Big Reunion" 

Randall L. Pickering 

Your Stout Alumni Association has 
always focused on being the mechanism 
for us as Alumni to remain in contact 
with the University and our fellow 
Alumni. The question is, how do we 
foster this what 

The Alumni Association Board of 
Directors has directed the staff and 
executive committee to undertake a 
review of our strategic plan. In any good 
management model, there is always a 
phase for "evaluation." Overthe next six 
months, that is what the Association 
wants to do. Evaluate itself in terms of 
how well our programs are working to 
foster and maintain contact between 
alumni and the University. Suzette

two changes approved by the Board on 
an experimental basis, one relating to 
Homecoming, and the other relating to 
class reunions. 

We are not looking for revolution, 
but evolution. Alumni gatherings, 
participation in Department 
recommended conferences, and the 
OUTLOOK have been well received by 
Alumni. But in true Stout tradition, we 
want to do it better. My challenge to you 
this month is to give the subject some 
thought. What could the Alumni

ALUMNI DIRECTOR'S COLUMN New Alumni Association Board Members 

Suzette L. Franks 

The UW-Stout Alumni Association 
Board of Directors met on Saturday, 
March 14. at the Ground Round 
Restaurant in Richfield, MN. At this 
meeting the board addressed some very 
important agenda items that have 
significant impact on our 1992-93 
alumni programs. 

As you are a valued asset and your 
involvement can only enhance our ability 
to fulfill our purpose, I would like to 
highlight some key decisions made that 
impact the Association's homecoming 
and reunion activities structure. 

A significant discussion occurred 
concerning homecoming attendance 
which has changed considerably over 
I In* jcars. Toikiy ;ilumm" arc all 
experiencing heavy demands on their 
time in both their professional and their 
private lives. It was agreed that 
homecoming is an important tradition. 

However, the Association agreed it 
should reevaluate the current activities. 

The past program for homecoming 
was to host apre-parade brunch, reunions 
and recognize the Distinguished and 
Service award winners at a post game 
banquet and dance. 

In an effort to draw more of an 
audience to these activities, the board 
voted to discontinue the banquet and 
dance. Instead, the Association will focus 
the activities on an expanded brunch 
incorporating the recognition of the 
distinguished and service awards. 
Classes interested in special reunion 
programs in conjunction with 
homecoming are welcome to initiate 
such activity. 

Reunions beginning in 1 993 will be 
held in the summer months with more of 
an "alumni college" focus — both social 
and educational. This change will affect 
the reunions for the classes of 42. 52. 
62. 66, 72 and 82. Any class member 
interested in participating on the working 
committee for their class, please contact 
the Alumni Office at 715/232-1 151. 

Watch for complete details of the 
1992 homecoming activities including 
the registration form in the August issue 

of the Outlook.

Stout Graduate to 

Head First 

Company in Stout 

Technology Park 

Tom S. Cervenka, who graduated from 
UW-Stout in 1984 with a BS in 
industrial technology and majored in 
manufacturing engineering, will head up 
a "high tech" custom injection molding 
facility being established in the Stout 
Technology Park by Phillips Plastics 
Corporation. The plant will be an 
automated facility utilizing CAD/CAM 
and robotics to manufacture medical 
instruments, devices and tools and 
medically implantable products that will 
be marketed worldwide. The plant will 
initially employ 25 people but anticipates 
an expansion up to 200 persons in two to 
three years. 

This will be the first manufacturing 
plant in the technology park. Chancellor 
Charles W. Sorensen and Bruce Siebold, 
dean of the School of Industry and 
Technology, welcomed the company and 
pledged university cooperation to 
establish a mutually beneficial 
relationship. In meeting with . Cervenka, 







(l-r) Paul Hoffman, Director of the Stout Technology Park; Tom Cei~venka '84, 
Operations Coordinator for Phillips Plastics; Pat Reisinger, Executive Director 
of the Stout University Foundation; and Joseph Hollan, Associate Dean of the 
School of Home Economics 

the Chancellor indicated that as a result 
of the technical expertise and resources 
of the university in the areas of plastics, 
packaging, rehabilitation technology, 
technology transfer, etc., the university 
was well positioned to be of assistance to 
the company. The Chancellor also noted 
that the university has received 

permission to plan an ABET Credited 
Manufacturing Engineering Program. 
The dean has indicated a business/ 
industrial professorship will be extended 
to Cervenka to facilitate interaction 
between the company and faculty and 
students of the university. Cervenka 
stated that they chose the Stout 

Technology Park because of the "close 
relationship with the University of 

Phillips Plastics will initiate 
manufacturing in a leased 15,000 square 
foot speculative building but has taken 
option on an adjacent lot for the possible 
construction of their own building. They 
also own six acres in the park on which 
they eventually plan to construct an 
educational facility for their company. 
Paul Hoffman, director of the technology 
park, said that "Phillips Plastics is exactly 
the type of company needed in America 
forthe growth and benefit of the country. 
It is a company that while serving the 
needs of society today has a vision for 
the future and is willing to invest in 
research and development for the future. 
It is a perfect first company for the 
technology park." 

The summer of 1992 will witness not 
only the establishment of this "high tech" 
manufacturing plant but the opening of 
the 20,000 square foot educational facility 
of the Chippewa Valley Technical 
College. One of the priorities for the 
park, according to Hoffman, is to find 
funding for an additional speculative 
building for leasing, as other companies 
are expressing interest in the Stout 
Technology Park. 

Art Graduate Receives Excellence Award 

Kristine Wohnsen, a 1988 graduate 
of the art and design department . recently 
won the Gold Idea VI industrial Desism 
Excellence Award and was featured in 
"Innovation," the journal of the Industrial 
Design Society of America. The 
competition is one of the top forms of 
recognition in design. Wohnsen's 
recognition was for the design of a device 
called "the Tadpole," a product that is 
intended for use by infants diagnosed 
with gastroesophageal reflux. GER, as it 
is also known, is a malfunction of the 
esophagus muscles that causes frequent 
return of stomach contents. If untreated, 
GER can cause weight loss, failure to 
thrive, abnormal neurologic symptoms 
and apnea. Wohnsen, an industrial 
designer at Tumble Forms, developed 
the product along with Michael Gravel 
of Bissell Healthcare Corp.

Sorensen: Schools Face Challenges 

Says worker quality must improve 

The United States is losing two 
million jobs annually to foreign 
competition and new technologies, which 
indicates a strong need to improve the 
quality of our workforce, University of 
Wisconsin-Stout Chancellor Charles 
Sorensen says. 

Sorensen made his comments 
recently to a group of top-level Hawaiian 
officials during a trip to the islands. 

Each year, 400,000 workers need 
retraining, Sorensen said, and that high 
schools and colleges must take steps to 
ensure graduates are ready for the jobs 
being offered. 

... employment readiness will 
require a broadly educated, highly 
trained, technologically qualified 
workforce," Sorensen said. 

Sorensen delivered his address in 
Hawaii at a special breakfast meeting on 
vocational education, attended by 
representatives from the Hawaiian State 
Board of Education, the Hawaiian State 
Senate, the University of Hawaii and 
other groups. 

Sorensen also said that without a 
skilled, knowledgeable and flexible 
workforce. America cannot adjust to the 
new requirements and demands of a 
world economy. Sorensen pointed to a 
recent survey conducted by Fortune 
magazine showing that 77 percent of the 
400 executives who responded ranked 
American education either fair or poor. 
He also pointed out that about half the 
high school graduates go on to college 
and in this group, about 50 percent 
complete their studies. He said 10 percent 
of the high school graduates go to 
technical school and about half graduate. 

Sorensen said this is of particular 
concern because today's workers must 
be enterprising and creative; possess a 
broad technical background; have the 
ability to work independently with little 
supervision; have the ability to link the 
practical and the theoretical; and 
be a person who can analyze and 
find solutions. 

He told the group that UW-Stout is 
keeping abreast of changing needs in the 


Dr. Carol Dobrunz, chair of the Stout 
University Foundation Grants 
Committee, announced the following 
faculty and staff awards for 1992-93: 

The Geraldine Hedberg Faculty and 
Staff Grants, a recent gift from the 
Hedberg Foundation to sponsoraportion 
of the Stout Foundation grant program 
with a gift of $20,000 for the next five 
years, were awarded to: 

•Sputter Coating Samples for use 
in a Scanning Electron Microscope - 
Dr. Mary Orfield. The Chemistry 
Department of UW-Stout received a gift 
of a scanning electron microscope from 
3M. The microscope is now operating 
but limited to viewing metal samples 
which conduct electrons. This proposal 
is a request for a sputter coater which 
will be used to coat nonconducting 
samples with a metal or graphite making 
them suitable for viewing in the SEM 
and thereby greatly increasing the 
usefulness of the SEM. 

•Managing Your Marriage: 
Relationship Management Seminars 
for Rural West-Central Wisconsin 
Couples - Dr. Judy Rommel. The 
purpose of this project is to develop pilot 
test and print materials for seminars under 
the title Managing Your Marriage. These 
seminars will focus on changes in the 
economic outlook for farm families 
which have created strains on 
management capabilities related to stress, 
conflict, time and relationships. Materials 
designed will assist farm couples in 
transferring farm business management 
skills to their marital relationship. 

•Tending Our P's & Q's: Progress 
and Quality at UW-Stout - Gloria 
Bjornerud and Margaret Madson. 
The current period of resource limitation 
and rapid change suggests that the 
university must continuously improve 
quality to achieve progress as well as to 
stem to the erosion of public confidence 
toward higher education. This project 
will provide training and materials 
related to quality improvement 
methods for faculty, academic staff and 

classified personnel. 

The Stout University Foundation 
Grants were awarded to: 

• Library Special Services 
Directory - Richard Banks/Theresa 
Muraski. This project is designed to 
create an electronic directory to the 
services available for students with 
disabilities at the UW-Stout Library 
Learning Center. It will serve as a user 
friendly program that will show services, 
equipment and personnel to students, 
faculty and staff. 

•Instrumental Music Program at 
UW-Stout - Cathie Weissman/Jim 
Moss. The purpose of this proposal is to 
obtain tour funding. The bands will be 
able to make a one time trip as far 
as Milwaukee to perform at city 
schools with which UW-Stout has . 
partnership agreements. 

•Minority Rention Survey - 
Richard Tafalla. Minority student 
recruitment at UW-Stout has shown great 
improvement, however, the retention rate 
of minority students remains substantially 
lower than non-minorities. The purpose 
of this project is to determine factors 
that contribute to the low minority 
student retention. 

•Multicultural Culinary 

Experience - Gladys Earl. A 
multicultural culinary experience is 
planned for Family Weekend to be held 
on campus April 11, 1992. Participants 
will research, create and share foods of 
many cultures. The purpose of this 
experience is to develop students' 
knowledge of the foods used by many 
cultures, provide an opportunity to share 
culture, and gain and promote an 
appreciation for and acceptance of foods 
of other cultures. 

•Interactive Programs of Ethical 
Development Outside of the Classroom 
Environment - Mary McManus/ 
Thomastine Ureh. This goal of this 
project is to promote discussion of 
personal and professional ethical 
issues in an arena outside of the 
classroom environment.

Approval Given to Plan 
Engineering Degree 

Approval f or the uni versi ty to plan 
a new degree program in man ufacturing 
engineering is another milestone for 
the institution and perhaps one of the 
most significant developments of the 
decade for the UW System, Chancellor 
Charles W. Sorensen said. Sorensen 
issued his statement following approval 
by the University of Wisconsin System 
Administration for Stout's "entitlement 
toplan," the first step in a formal process 
of obtaining a new degree program. 
The approval followed a first reading 
of a "change of mission" for the 
university by the Board of Regents. 
The university will have about a year 
to plan curriculum and secure staffing 
before returning to the Board of Regents 
to seek final approval of the degree. 

The new degree will require a slight 
modification to the university's 
mission statement to include 
manufacturing engineering. Final 
approval for the mission change 
would come at the same time as final 
approval forthe degree program. The 
degree program was proposed after 
extensive study, including a recent 
consultants' report that was completed 
in January, Sorensen said. The 
consultants' report concluded that the 
applied nature of preparation for 
graduation from a proposed UW- 
Stout manufacturing engineering 
program would be closely attuned to 
the needs of medium and small 
manufacturing firms. 

School of Home 
Economics Proposes 
Name Change 

The faculty and staff of the School 
of Home Economics have proposed to 
Vice Chancellor DePuy that the name of 
the School be changed to the "College of 
Human Environmental Services" 
effective August 1992. Dean Esther 
Fahm states that the name change is 
"based on the current focus of academic 
program offerings and the contemporary 
mission of the School. Additionally, the 
proposed change reflects the evolution 
and development of home economics as 
a professional field of study in higher 
education as well as the organization and 
function of the unit at our University." 
The American Home" Economics 
Association recently reported 95 different 
names for units traditionally known as 
"Home Economics". 

ATTN: Industrial 
Technology Graduates 

UW-Stout industrial technology 
graduates who received their degrees 
between 1981 and 1992 are eligible for 
automatic certification through the 
National Association of Industrial 
Technology (NAIT) as either Certified 
Industrial Technologiests (CIT) or 
Certified Senior Industrial Technologists 
(CSIT) if they have at least five years of 
appropriate work experience. Students 
who have graduated from accredited 
programs (which Stout has been since 
1981) are eligible to be certified through 
a "Grandfather" clause being offered by 
NAIT until December 1992. After that 
time they would need to pass a 
certification examination in order to be 
allowed to use the CIT or CSIT 
designation after their name. UW-Stout 
will be mailing application forms to 
Stout graduates in September. If you 
want information before that time,

University Assists Firm With Reusable Container 


A major Wisconsin manufacturing 
firm is proving that what's good for the 
environment can also be good for profits. 
John Deere's lawn and garden 
manufacturing plant in Horicon is 
switching to a reusable container system 
for its suppliers who now ship parts to 
the plant in costly, throw-away 
packaging. The container project is a 
cooperative venture with another 
Wisconsin company, Phillips Plastics 
Corp., and the university. Phillips has 
developed a computerized system to 
manage the reusable containers, said 
Bruce Hendrickson, president of Troix 
Corp., Division of Phillips Plastics. "We 
"had to develop a "system that would get 
the appropriate container to the right 
place at the right time," Hendrickson 
said. "The container tracking system will 
extend from the assembler's station at 
the Horicon plant to the manufacturing 
facilities of component parts suppliers, 

and all the handling and transportation 
points in between." Hendrickson said 
the new process will streamline handling 
procedures, increase product quality, 
provide a better work environment and 
reduce costs. In 1990, Phillips and John 

"What made this project unique 
was John Deere's willingness to 
look at the long-range impact not 
only on productivity but the 
environment as well " 

-Larry Schneider, Director 
Technology Transfer Institute 

Deere asked Stout to analyze John Deere's 
materials handling system. "Materials 
handling is a significant portion of 
manufacture and delivery costs of 
consumer goods," said Larry Schneider, 
director of the Technology Transfer 
Institute. "It's an important area of 
concern for companies looking to 


improve productivity. We regularly work 
with companies to address this issue. 
What made this project unique was John 
Deere's willingness to look at the long- 
range impact not only on productivity 
but the environment as well." Although 
John Deere Horicon Works had an a ward- 
winning recycling program in place, the 
company sent a significant amount of 
compacted crating and cartons to 
landfills. Wisconsin's new and tougher 
recycling law calls for increased 
restrictions on landfill use and greater 
reliance on recycling. As environmental 
laws become stricter, many 
manufacturing firms are expected to 
revamp their production processes. Deere 
went beyond minimal compliance with 
the law by implementing the reusable 
containers. The Stout study indicated 
that Deere could save more than $500,000 
annually with a program that reduced 
package and landfill costs. 

UW-Stout Seeks 
Cuban Contacts 

By Pamela Bowers 
EauCIaire Leader-Telegram 

The University of Wisconsin-Stout 
chancellor and two faculty members 
recently traveled to Cuba to look into the 
possibility of developing some type of 
exchange program with the University 
of Havana. 

Chancellor Charles Sorensen, 
Esther Fahm, dean of the School of Home 
Economics, and Jafar Jafari, associate 
professor of the Department of 
Hospitality and Tourism, went to Cuba 
from Feb. 24 to March 2. Their trip was 
funded by a tourism agency for the 
Cuban government. 

"We just got acquainted more or 
less," Sorensen said. "We signed a very 
general agreement saying within the laws 
of both countries we will try to find ways 
to cooperate." 

Sorensen said in the near future it 
may be possible for the vice president 
and/or the president of University of 
Havana to visit Menomonie. 

"Any relationship between the two 
universities will be difficult now because 
of the sanctions the United States has 
against Cuba," Sorensen said. "The U.S. 
State Department would allow him and 

UW-Stout representatives (back l-r) Jafar Jafari, associate professor of the 
Department of Hospitality and Tourism, Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen, Esther 
Fahm, dean of the School of Home Economics with Cubian hosts Lie. Bernardo 
Nievares DeLama, Orlando Rangel and Jesus Alvarex Valdes 

the faculty to travel to Cuba if they 
agreed not to give information that would 
help Cuba develop its economy," 
Sorensen added. 

"(This was) an attempt to develop a 
relationship so when we have normal 
relations with Cuba we'll be in a good 
position to have cooperative partnerships 

with Havana," Sorensen said. 

Sorensen said be believes within a 
decade the U.S. will lift sanctions and 
recognize the Cuban government. . 

At this point it may be possible to 
develop a faculty and student exchange 
program with the University of Havana 
and the two schools could engage in joint 

research projects, he said. 

Four American universities have 
an association with Havana now, 
Sorensen said. 

"We hope they'll provide insight 
into what we can and cannot do, " he said. 

UW-Stout was contacted by Cuban 
officials because they are interested in 
developing tourism, which is a program 
at the Wisconsin school. Cubans want to 
increase tourism to spur their economy, 
Sorensen said. 

Sorensen said Havana is a grand 
city, but with poor infrastructure. 
The city with about two million people is 
run down and lights are kept off to 
save electricity. 

The University of Havana is also 
deteriorating and in need of repair, 
Sorensen said. Between 7,000 and 8,000 
full-time students attend the college, 
although the extension programs reach 
about 25,000 people. 

Despite the run-down condition of 
the university, faculty members are 
upbeat and very active doing research, 
Sorensen said. 

For us to have an opportunity to be 
one of the first schools to work with the 
University of Havana, to help them when 
it is legally possible to do so, is exciting," 
Sorensen said, noting future exchange 
programs could allow cultural 
opportunities for UW-Stout students.
